On December 30th, 2021, Pottawattamie County purchased Mt. Crescent Ski Area in Honey Creek, IA with support from the Iowa West Foundation, an advocate of sustainable regional development. Mount Crescent sits directly south of Pottawattamie County park Hitchcock Nature Center and is nestled in the globally significant Loess Hills. The acquisition is part of Pottawattamie County's plan to create one of the largest nature areas in the state in an effort to increase access to high-quality public land and recreation in Iowa.

Thank you to the residents who shared their feedback about Mt. Crescent Ski Area's acquisition. More details will be released in the coming months about future plans at the ski hill.
